Mariners keep on winning
The Seattle Mariners kept up one of the best starts in Major League Baseball history on Friday (Thailand time), winning 7-6 in 10 innings at the Kansas City Royals to make it 13 wins from their first 15 games.
The only two teams to outdo them were the Milwaukee Brewers (1987) and the Atlanta Braves (1982) – both went 13-0 at the start of those seasons.
The Mariners did it in Kansas as they have so far this season; they hit home runs and they came from behind to win.
Mitch Haniger’s triple to centre field in the top of the ninth inning batted in two runners to tie it up at 6-6 and Dan Vogelbach’s home run in the first extra inning clinched the W.
It means Seattle have hit homers in all their first 15 games, also an MLB record.
Oakland Athletics designated hitter Khris Davis hit two homers in the 8-5 win over the Baltimore Orioles. It was the second straight day he hit 2 home runs and means he now has an MLB-leading nine for the season.
